Snack: Ferrero Eggs

IMG_3812

This Easter, Ferrero has pushed out a new product in the US, the Ferrero Eggs. There are two flavors: Hazelnut and Cocoa. When I saw them at Ralph’s last week, I grabbed a bag of the hazelnut one. Once I have tried it, I couldn’t stop eating. I ate 5 eggs continuously. If I have no health concern (that chocolate is not too healthy for you), I really would have finished all 10 eggs at once. This week, I went back to Ralph’s and got 3 bags. We will see how long they last.

A hard chocolate shell covers a thin layer of crispy wafer with a creamy chocolate filling. They remind me so much of Ferrero Rocher, but without the nut. I grew up eating Ferrero Rocher. I love them, but not a huge fan of the nut. When I am eating a Ferrero Rocher, I always eat the nut first, because I want to enjoy just the chocolate, wafer and creamy center on their own. Therefore, these eggs are perfect for me. No nut picking any more.

The hazelnut ones are must better than the cocoa ones. They are unique and different. The flavors of the cocoa ones are too simple and couldn’t stand out. Anyway, try them! Buy them before Easter is over.

Where to buy? I bought them at Ralph’s, but I don’t think all Ralph’s have them. You may have to check out a few stores. Please let me know if you see them somewhere else.

Egg Tarts

Egg tart is one of the Hong Kong classic. Everyone in Hong Kong loves egg tart. They like to eat it for breakfast, brunch as dim sum or tea time snack. An egg tart is a baked egg custard in a pastry. There are mainly 2 types of egg tarts. One with a shortcrust pastry and the other with a puff pastry. This recipe is the shortcrust one. I personally love this crust the most. It is buttery with a hint of savory, which is perfect with the smooth and lightly sweetened egg custard. Whenever I am baking these little egg tarts at home, the house just smells incredible. It is hard to eat only one. Maybe, I can sneak in two in my stomach before anyone found out.

Caramel Creme Brulee

Delicious!!!! I love this creme brulee. The custard was very smooth and creamy. Compare to the basic creme brulee, the caramel custard gave some extra smokiness. It is a great twist. Personally, I am not a big fan of caramel. But this caramel added one more layer of flavors in the creme brulee. It is purely good. The sugar topping was crunchy and sweet. I am sure you will like this recipe.

Pork Cutlet Rice Bowl

Many of the main Japanese dishes have a hint of sweet. This rice bowl is the same. The savory of the crispy pork chop is perfect with the sweet onions, eggs, and broth. Even though I didn’t use dashi broth and I only used water, my sister and I both agreed that this dish just tasted like the one in restaurants. The original recipe is a bit too sweet, so I reduce the sugar to 4 tablespoons in the following recipe. I believe this should just be right now. Give this a try! I think you will really like it.
